Hughes Christensen, a division of Baker Hughes Inc., and Tesco Corp. have entered into a cooperative agreement for the delivery of the Hughes EZ Case drilling shoe solution to the global E&P community.
Hughes Christensen will provide its EZ Case tool and applications engineering support to the joint initiative. Tesco will provide the drilling engineering, project management, and field-level delivery of the EZ Case solution.
The EZ Case tool is a premium drilling shoe tool, designed to offer high performance in moderately competent formations, and is ideally suited for drilling-in surface strings and straight hole liner sections.
